All In The Detail

I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again.  I'm utterly convinced that our lives are lived in the finest of detail and the smallest of moments.  

My life is changing so completely and so significantly at the moment.  When I step back and look it's the minutiae that has changed everything.  A brave email that has completely changed the course of my employment situation, a date marked in the calendar to open my first exhibition, an investment of $100 in an e-course.  Tiny, small steps that change everything, forever.

And perhaps the most profound of these small moments is the one where I glimpsed the possibility of living the life of my dreams. 


Edited: If you're stopping by from Kelly Rae's Flying Lessons, hello and a huge welcome.  Would you like to join the {messages from the universe} Flickr group, a place to share words and affirmations found randomly in the world?  I'd love to see your finds.
